Who we are

We're a professional service offering advice, guidance, training, monitoring, and support to make sure you remain compliant with statutory duties relating to educational visits and outdoor education.

We'll help you meet national standards and expectations and provide your pupils with a wide range of high quality outdoor learning opportunities.

We provide core functions that are non-delegated and form part of the strategic provision of the council. These are free to maintained schools; prices for academies are available on application. Fees may apply for training courses.
